Raya is about two uni sweethearts meeting again after 30 years. The play unfolds in the old student house they used to spend time in. We’re taken on a journey of reconnecting to the past and our younger selves.

“it’s wonderful to be in an intimate space up close to lifelike characters who only gradually strip back layers of flirtation, awkwardness, jollity and self-deception to reveal complex, contradictory emotional lives. I’d almost forgotten how powerful theatre’s microscope can be.” - The Times
